TERMITE INSPECTIONS KANSAS CITY

Termites and other wood-damaging bugs such as carpenter ants and carpenter bees can cause major damage to a home. Termites swarm in the late spring through the fall and will find any tiny opening in the home to enter and start building their colony. They only need a space 1/32 inches wide to enter, so even the smallest crack can be an issue.

THERE ARE FOUR MAIN WAYS TERMITES ENTER A BUILDING:

  • Inside the holes of hollow block walls
  • Crawl up the side of foundations walls and supports
  • Through openings in expansion joints
  • Through cracks in the foundation around plumbing

By identifying the weak and vulnerable areas of your home, you might be able to make repairs, fill holes and prevent termites from entering your home in the first place.

IF YOU ARE CONCERNED THAT YOU MAY STILL HAVE AN INFESTATION, HERE ARE SIGNS OUR INSPECTORS WILL LOOK FOR WHEN CONDUCTING A TERMITE INSPECTION:

Droppings

May resemble sawdust or coffee grounds and can be found in mounds or trails.

Swarms

Swarms of termites or carpenter bees can be found near windows, doors, piles of wood and mulch, and tree stumps. After a swarm, you may see discarded wings.

Damaged Wood

Wood damaged by termites will often have a hollow sound and a honeycomb look to it inside. The material will probably crumble when you bump it or put pressure on it.

Earth Tubes

Worker termites create dirt-crusted tubes on walls, foundations, floors, and support joists. They use these tubes to travel about and often give a wall a rippled appearance.

Live Termites

Termites are not easily spotted when they are not swarming as they tend to stay inside their colonies and tunnels but by looking inside walls and under materials we can find these destructive bugs. Reproductive kings and queens have wings and are black or brown while worker termites are white.

If you suspect your home has a potential termite problem, or you just want to ensure that a new purchase is termite-free, Crown Home Inspections will conduct a thorough termite inspection, checking for potential infestations, damage, and the areas of the home that need maintenance to prevent a future problem. You can save thousands of dollars in potential future remediation and repairs by having a termite inspection conducted today.

    After searching for a reliable and professional mold testing company that provides air sampling, I made numerous calls and did a lot of comparisons based on Google ratings. It was through a recommendation from PureClean, a company that … More does not offer air sampling, that I found Crown Home Inspection. They came highly recommended. After contacting them and comparing their services with other companies, it became clear that Crown Home Inspection has an exceptionally professional, trustworthy, and honest team. They patiently answered all my questions over the phone. The inspector John was knowledgeable and professional, and also flexible enough to accommodate my schedule, which I greatly appreciated. I highly recommend them.

    Travis did a great job easing our minds–he went through every single point and answered our questions. He was great with us as first time homebuyers and the ability to schedule with one service that also scheduled chimney and sewer was … More very helpful. The outsource services of chimney and sewer were also very great. We felt very informed.
